    Mir-Mahna (sometimes spelled Mir Mahna) is a computer game based on the life of Mir Mahna, an Amir of Kharg, Iran who successfully fought against Dutch colonial forces in Iran during the 1740s reign of Nader Shah.[1] Introduced in August 2010 at Gamescom 2010,[2] Mir-Mahna officially was released in Tehran, Iran in February 2011 and it was supported by Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation.[1][3][4][5][6][7] Mir-Mahna is the first Iranian game about the life of a contemporary Iranian hero and the second game after "Garshasp Gorz-e-Serit" to focus on Iranian heroes.[1] The game story line was based on a series of books entitled, "On the Red Marine Roads" by Nader Ebrahimi,[8] an Iranian writer, screenwriter, photographer, director and actor. By using traditional Iranian music with modern computer motion capture, the game designers sought to introduce Iranian culture and civilization worldwide.[1][9] This was part of a larger effort by the Iranian government to use computer games to help convey its culture.[3]
